Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe

Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe
Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe

"This easy chicken enchilada casserole recipe is cheesy, saucy, and delicious. It takes chicken enchiladas and simplifies the prep so that you can easily serve your favorite Mexican dish even on your busiest nights. I love Mexican food. Like I could seriously eat it every single day of the week. Between our healthy chicken tortilla soup, our simple pork tacos, and our tilapia fish tacos loaded with Fresh Mango salsa I am usually set with easy Mexican recipes. But the other day I was craving enchiladas, but my day was so busy I knew I would never have the time to prep them. So, I decided to get a little creative in the kitchen and made this easy chicken enchilada casserole. Let me tell you. It is so easy to prep like less than 20 minutes and it tastes amazing. The flavors of this dish come together so well as you combine layers of tortillas, chicken, beans, enchilada sauce, and cheese. You will want to add this to your weekly meal plan for sure because your whole family will love this dish!"
